The Miminiska landing strip was a happening place Tuesday August 14th as the Midwest Flyers (MWF’s) from southern Wisconsin descended in an array of different aircraft: Cessna T206, Cherokee PA28-180, F33A Beechcraft Bonanza, Cessna 182P, Piper Arrow III, Cherokee 180, and a Piper PA28A Archer… just to name a few. The MWF’s have been coming here for almost ten years now to share their two loves, Fishing and Flying. Miminiska is one of the few places where guests can cruise over rugged boreal wilderness in their personal aircraft, land, and enjoy great fishing on the Albany in only a few hours (just over 5hrs from Wisconsin). The MWF’s composed of 15 guys and 1 lucky lady, ignored the rain and wind to land some great catches. Phil, a long time MWF guest, landed a 40in pike on a jig and a master angler pin, but the catch of the week award goes to Rosie, our lone lady who reeled in a nice plump 5lb rock! -A very nice piece I might add. Taking a break from the weather, the group of close friends enjoyed shore lunches at the lodge while they shared stories and laughter amidst the roar of a crackling fire. The MWF’s always bring lots of fun to Miminiska, they are a pleasure to serve, and we look forward seeing them all again.
